This is a great site I discovered a few years ago after a several months of fitness walking evolved into my interest in running. Since I have always been somewhat of a numbers nut tracking my time and mileage was important to me so while searching for a better way to figure out my distance I stumbled into America's Running Routes.
Last week while on vacation in Fort Myers Beach was the first time I used the site to select a route. On the west coast of Florida the sun doesn't rise as early as I'm accustom to in New England so I was up early waiting for dawn so I could begin my first run on the sand. Since I was staying towards the northern end of the island I estimated the journey to the starting point of the mapped route and back would be about 7 miles which was what my training plan called for that day.
As the sun attempted to break out a dark cloud seemed to be following me as I approached the 3-1/2 mile mark. The "awesome beach run" listed on America's Running Routes turned out to be a decent change of pace for me since I never run on sand. There is not traffic to worry about but you do need to pay attention to each step. Along the way I passed a few sand castles and seveal deep holes that could easily result in a broken leg.
On the return run the distant rainbow was pointing the way to my pot of gold. Unfortunately to reach that point I did have to endure the wind and rain. My expectation of a flat easy run was not exactly as anticipated but this was only the first of five outings I planned to for each morning of my summer vacation.
